How much did you lose pre-op?



Recommended Posts

And by pre-op I mean the 2 week diet that the majority of people have to go on. I know some are 3 and some are 4 and I'm super jealous of the people who don't go on one at all.

I've lost 8 pounds in 11 days. I feel like I haven't lost enough. Should I be concerned?

Your losing weight and that's all that matters. You shouldn't be worried. Everyone's results will vary based on their individual body types and other health issues. Don't be discouraged. You're doing just fine.

I only had an 8 day pre-op liquid diet. I was asked to lose between 10-20lbs and I lost around 13lbs during those 8 days. My surgeon was more concerned that I just followed the liquid diet to make sure my liver would shrink and soften up to make the surgery that much easier and less risky for him. Good luck and I'm sure you'll do fine!

Awesome! I weighed myself this morning on day 5 and realized I had lost 11lbs in 5 days postop! I had expected to weigh the same or more as most people said you have Fluid build up from the IV's, etc... Glad to be in the losers club!

Everyone's body is different! Your body is doing just fine and losing at a rate that it feels is safe and healthy for it to do so.

I lost 11 lbs pre-op on a 2-week low carb diet. I was pretty surprised because I had a low starting BMI (32.7), and expected to lose very little. However, there are people who did not lose any weight at all (doesn't mean something is wrong, that's just their body protecting itself when it feels its not getting the same amount of nutrients).
